Assessment Projects

Messina conducts annual assessments related to our Messina Learning Outcomes. From 2012-2014 all aspects of our learning outcomes were generally assessed. In Fall 2015, we began a cyclical look at our learning outcomes through the lens of data collection. Our assessment cycle is as follows:

  • 2015-2016: Jesuit Mission and Values
  • 2016-2017: Critical Understanding
  • 2017-2018: Connections to Loyola Community
  • 2018-2019: Integrated Learning

Below is a list of previous assessment projects for general review. Questions about these findings should be directed to Mary Ellen Wade, Associate Director of Messina, mewade@loyola.edu 410-617-2225.
